Super Smash Bros. completes its roster with Bayonetta and Corrin next week

Nintendo was offering a vague February release date for Bayonetta and Corrin's Smash Bros. debuts up to this point. But now there looks to be a solid release date in place and it looks to be next week!


Nintendo has been uploading a few new videos on its UK YouTube channel, but hidden in those videos are a few items of note. In particular, Super Smash Bros. has been quiet about an exact date for Corrin and Bayonetta's arrival into the game. That is, until now. A pair of new videos have been uploaded and they point to a February 4 release date.

The two video below show Bayonetta and Corin going one-on-one, each showing their respective new abilities. The second video also shows off the new Bayonetta-themed Umbra Tower stage.

While new videos are perfectly fine, once again, the big news piece is that a February 4 release date appears to be confirmed for the new characters, along with the final Mii Fighter costumes. While that is a UK release date, the timing should be similar, if not the exact same for North America.

Update: It's actually a day earlier, as confirmed by Nintendo of America itself:

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
